    Yeah, that's one reason I want to put the toggle switch inline to the inverter, this way it'll shut ALL down. I think Noam's idea would work. When I turn on the toggle switch it'll turn on the inverter which will turn on the pc. I just forgot how to get into the setup screen.

    The other option is to go the other route. No inverter and keep it 12v all the way through. This tends to be more expensive because you don't usually get to use parts you have laying around, but the single toggle on/off is easy.

    I wanted to do the same thing so I'm going to wire this:
